That’s not going over well for some.

The DCCC is certainly marketing off the women’s march and the energy that came from that event,” stated Jillian Gilcrest, co-organizer of Women’s March Connecticut. “If you visit their webpage, the entire landing page is an image from that day. But if they want to engage women who came out and became engaged before and since the women’s march, then they need to stand with us and not against us. And their most recent position most certainly stands against us.”
